You can partner with the Sisters of St. Francis and our sponsored ministries by your generosity now and in the future. Through your will or trust, you can continue to play an important role in our work. If you are interested in giving a gift of ongoing significance, the suggestions below may be of interest.
- Cash Gifts
Cash donations are easy to make and can be designated for immediate needs.
A bequest in a will is a way to insure that your family and the Sisters of St. Francis are remembered. Bequests can take a number of forms: a fixed amount may be designated; a percentage of the total assets of the estate may be designated; or specific property such as securities, real estate or personal property may be designated. A residual bequest is a gift which assigns whatever property is left over after other bequests have been fulfilled.
- Real Estate
If real estate or other property has increased in value, it is sometimes more advantageous to give such property rather than to retain the property and give cash.
- Life Insurance
Life insurance policies can allow you to make a gift of assets you no longer need.
- Retirement Plans
Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs), company-sponsored pension and profit sharing plans make excellent gifts.
